Create Your Own Luck

It seems like some people just have it all, right?  How do they do it?  How are they so lucky? It’s time to switch things up a bit, create your own luck, push yourself out of your comfort zone and see what happens.  You never know who you might meet or what you might discover.  We’ve got three easy strategies to help you create your own luck.
Switch it Up!
It’s easy to become a creature of habit.  Once we figure out a schedule that works for us – work, Jazzercise, errands, etc.  We kind of have our weeks mapped out so we know where to be, when, and how it works for us.  But where’s the fun in that?  Try taking a Jazzercise class at a different time.  Usually a morning person?  Try an evening class.  A new instructor might spark some new motivation, push you just a little harder.  You may even make a new friend or see a familiar face. 
Go Old School
In a world dominated by screen time, it’s easy to block out the world around us.  So, hear us out on this one.  Try to introduce yourself to one new person a day for a week.  Whether it’s on your way to work, running errands, or picking up the kids from school, try looking right at someone and saying “Hi, how are you?” At the very least, you’ll brighten their day.  Best case, you strike up a conversation and may find you have something in common.  Call us “old school” but there’s something special about sharing a smile and a “hello” that can really spread some much needed positivity and open us up to new possibilities.  And lucky you, you might make a new friend!
Trust Social Proof
Do you find yourself gravitating to a restaurant or local watering hole where everybody knows your name?  Yeah, us too.  Sometimes it’s worth breaking the old “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mentality.  With the world at our finger tips, there are plenty of review sites and apps that can help us discover a new eatery, coffee spot, or bar; or try something new in your neighborhood that a friend has been raving about. We all have a place we’ve been eager to try but usually end up choosing Old Faithful in the end. Give it a shot - you may find your new favorite go-to spot, favorite meal, or favorite place to get your caffeine fix. 
The key to having it all, might just be as simple as being open to unexpected opportunities.  You can create your own luck just by switching things up a bit.  Be the woman that everyone says “Wow, she’s got it all!” And don’t be afraid to share our simple tips and tricks with your friends and family – because we all deserve to have it all!
